Cultural Traffic, billed as a new print publishing arts fair, is Toby Mott’s most recent enterprise and we are delighted to have been invited to participate alongside others whose area of concern and interest falls between the lines that define category in culture. For those that need an introduction, Toby Mott has put together a collection of ephemera, posters and flyers produced in the Seventies and Eighties by British Skinheads and Punks used to agitate on the Left and Right and promote transgressive and sometimes violent political, social and music scenes. Mott has been in and around the art world for as long as we can remember. His first foray into the public eye was as a member of the Grey Organisation who memorably chucked grey paint over the windows, railings and pavement of Cork Street (1985). It was an anti-establishment act of vandalism that got him notoriety and arrested. He later worked as an artist and was shown by Maureen Paley! But that’s enough about Mott for the real story is that FIG will be presenting amongst other prints, drawings and artefacts a beautiful and complete set of Flair magazines… that is if someone doesn’t buy them from the FIG Online Shop before we get to the show.
